||The death metal supergroup Nader Sadek has released a new video. The project released the debut In The Flesh in 2011 and now, three years later, Nader Sadek has re-recorded the song "Mechanic Idolatry" as "Re:Mechanic" and shot a new video for it. You can now watch it below.
Sadek has assembled an all star cast of extreme metal musicians to help him realise his musical vision, including Travis Ryan (Cattle Decapitation), Rune "Blasphemer" Eriksen (Aura Noir, Ava Inferi, ex-Mayhem), Flo Mounier (Cryptopsy) and Marcin "Martin" Rygiel (ex-Decapitated).
Sadek states: "For the final video, it was important for me to shoot at the ancient Crystal Altar in Egypt, cutting it with footage from the New York City underground. Conceptually, I wanted to broaden the scope and scale of the project, and to reaffirm the global afflictions caused by our petrol worship. In a sense, the underground has risen and the surface has sunk, and with this video and the album In The Flesh, listeners get snared in the protagonist's nonlinear time loop: manufactured, dismembered, and released into the vacant desert, his prayer for survival is denied as he is consumed by the unending circle of death."
"In The Flesh and the more music-based projects prior to it were exactly that, projects. Nader Sadek was never a band or band name for that matter. The projects continue to grow and change, and it's become very interesting to hear different artists reinterpret the material. Three years after its original inception, this song ('Re:Mechanic') needed some new personality, and I think the re-recording with Travis Ryan, Mike Hrubovac, Tim Rocheny, Orestis Nalmpantis and Kelly Conlon with a superb intro by Martin Rygiel, has given it more strength and power. Personally, I think the new version is refreshing."
